Let’s face it, the past year has taken its toll on us all, but especially us moms. We have had to take on other roles which perhaps weren’t in our wheelhouse, like homeschooling, and it may very well put you on the edge.
One area that I typically see when I work with moms in coaching sessions is our lack of care to make sure we are getting the nutrients that we need for energy and mood support. We prioritize our kids, which is what we love to do. However, we must take into consideration our health and what we are doing to help our body function at its best.
When I was recovering from depression and restoring my body to emotional health, I quickly realized that I was lacking B vitamins. Tiredness, brain fog, mood issues, lack of joy, no energy, and inability to concentrate plagued me deeply. I just couldn’t get out of the funk.
After some research and suggestions from friends, I began adding a good quality B vitamin into my daily routine. It made a huge difference. I began to have more energy, woke up with a new attitude for my day, and didn’t have the afternoon crashes I had been experiencing where I ran for a cup of coffee…or two.
Right now, your current daily rhythm likely leaves your body lacking nutrition and is leaving your adrenal system (our fight or flight response) on overdrive. B vitamins are a great way to support that system.
Why Do We Need B Vitamins?
B vitamins are essential to our health and well-being. Each B vitamin performs a unique and separate function, which is why a “B Complex” vitamin is essential. Unfortunately, B vitamins must be replenished daily, as they are water-soluble and therefore not stored in the body. It is difficult to gain all the B vitamins we need from our food, even in the best-case scenario. Plus, different medications such as hormonal birth control can wreak havoc on the body’s B-vitamin levels, which is why it’s an especially good idea to supplement. This is also a great addition to your routine if you are currently expecting or are wanting to grow your family in the near future!
My Favorite Choice for B Vitamins
I am all about supporting the body and giving it really good stuff. My philosophy is why bother if you are dumping in synthetic compounds and your body has to try to decipher what to do with those? Real food and real nutrients, friends, is what will help make a difference for all aspects of your health, including energy and mood support. This is why I choose Young Living’s Super B. It literally is a mom’s best friend!
Super B is known for supporting normal cardiovascular and cognitive health, aiding in mood improvement, and sustaining healthy energy levels. Hello, said all the moms! We need Super B for energy and mood support!
It contains all eight essential, energy-boosting B vitamins. Nutmeg essential oil has been added (super helpful for the adrenal glands), and it is bioavailable (which means it actually enters the circulation when introduced into the body and is able to have an active effect). Chelated minerals such as magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc are also included, which means all those much-needed minerals are not just going out and down the toilet!
You will also find Orgen-FA, a natural folate source derived from lemon peels, and methylcobalamin, a more bioavailable source of B12. Our bodies have a hard time absorbing and utilizing folic acid, so we need it in the form of folate. Plus, due to enzyme activity, the majority of individuals need a methylated folate for ideal absorption.
